Head Engagement 2nd pregnancy

Hi all!!
I am currently 37weeks pregnant with my second child.
At my gynae visit a few days ago,the doc seemed surprised that babies head had engaged already.Ive also heard that in 2nd pregnancies it happens a bit later,sometimes during labour.He did mention tho that the placenta still seemed to be functioning well,and hadnt calcified much.Does the babys engagement have anything to do with a possible earlier delivery? I am scheduled for an elective Caesar on the 15th of March.
Thank you for your advice:)

The head can engage from 34 weeks and does not relate to the time of labour.
