Is it alright to swim in the lake in late pregnancy? I'm 35 weeks

In brief: Yes

Swimming is a fine exercise and your body will be gently supported by the water. The vaginal canal is well isolated from the outside so lake water should pose no problem. I am assuming the lake is not otherwise contaminated and polluted.
