Hello,
Thanks for placing your worry. Even though you have over dosed yourself, the chances of getting pregnant after taking Nordette is zero. The only issue now, is you might some few side effects as a result of taking excess dose. When next you miss a dose or take a dose earlier, just don't take excess. In your case, after taking the second dose, it would have been enough to prevent pregnancy. The manufacturer of nordette indicated taking nordette 4 tabs immediately within 120 hrs after unprotected sex, then repeating 2nd dose 12hrs after.
So you should be rest assured that you are safe and if you develop any abnormal symptoms just please see your doctor or you place your query on this site.

Best regards
