Losing pedal pressure.

I have noticed that my brake pedal feel will get soft after a few pumps and then harden up again. I though I had a leak but I have no loss of fluid or puddles. Could it be a weak line that is expanding with pressure or is it something else?

sounds like the master cylinder may be going belly-up.

Or could be some air in the lines, bleed well. Then probably get ready to replace the MC.

If there's no external leakage, it's probably the seals inside the MC that are leaking, allowing fluid to bypass the piston.
