Can pregnancy occur in this situation?

I had semen on my hands and washed my hands with hot soapy water. I then touched my lower stomach and I am concerned that some sperm could've travelled to my vagina. And since I was stood up could it have made it easier due to gravity causing the sperm to travel down?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Sperm only survives a few minutes in open air. It will die immediately if washed with soap and water. When you touched your stomach there was no living sperm. Even if there was, for example, it cannot travel from your stomach to your vaginal and cause pregnancy. So, no need to worry about pregnancy.
