Engagement of baby's head question

The pregnancy literature says that for a first pregnancy the baby's head should engage at the earliest 2 to 4 weeks before the birth and that in subsequent pregnancies, engagement is usually much closer to the birth. However, I am in my 33rd week and feel as though my baby's head had engaged - I breathe more easily, urinate more often and appear to have more space between my breasts and the top of my tummy than a couple of days ago. I can also not sit on a chair without my legs at least 90° apart.
Has anyone any experience or knowledge of this? I wonder whether it is possible for the head to engage this early and whether I should be worrying about pretern labour...
