In brief: Yes

It is likely to be safe, but it is a pregnancy class c drug, meaning no human studies have been done with this drug to show safety in pregnancy.
It may prolong labor because of how the drug works to relax uterine muscle. The class of drug Felodipine belongs to is sometimes used to try to stop preterm labor. Weigh the potential benefits against the potential risks with your doctor.
