I woke up feeling like a did a bunch of sit-ups, its not sore just feel's like my tummy is stiff but it's not.. Also noticed the baby hasn't been moving as much could that mean im going into labour?

Your abdominal muscles might be staring to separate. Does it feel like your belly is splitting open, ripping and kind of a burning feeling? For me it started around 36 weeks and it kind of gets worse, sorry to say. I felt relief from a belly band type of thing that holds the belly muscles together, but it also wasn't very comfy to wear.
Ask you OB/midwife about it, doesn't sound like labor to me.
Good luck with your birth! It's such an exciting thing!!!
