Can sperm from precum swim across buttocks or lower abdomen area into vagina and cause pregnancy?

Wouldn't think so. Sperm are designed to function well in the protected environment of the inner female genital tract. When exposed to the drying effects of air/ outside skin they burn up the meager energy supplies they have & die. I would not expect the situation cited to produce anything.
