Birth control left on heating pad?

Kind of a weird question but I accidentally left my birth control (Ortho Novum 1/35) on my bed all day while the electric heating pad was on.  When I picked up the case it was warm.  I don't have a thermometer on me but I'm guessing the temp of the heating pad is maybe around 80 - 100F (my bf thinks it's not higher than body temp).  Now the case wasn't burning hot to the touch but it was still pretty warm, maybe close to body temp warm (the pill was a little tiny bit warm too when I took it).  Should I be freaking out or do I have nothing to worry about?  I'm on my second to last pill before the placebos start, so I don't know if I'd be in the danger zone for missing pills?  I can't skip because I can't get a new pack until sometime next week, so argh.  I'm going to double up on protection either way because I'm a super paranoid person.

I'm pretty sure I'm freaking out over nothing, but you never know.
