What causes preterm labor?

Can stress cause preterm labor? Has this ever happened to you or someone you know? I'm 33 weeks 0 days pregnant and just went through an EXTREMELY stressful event causing me to walk away carrying my 30 lb 2 year about 5 blocks on my hip. I'm not high-risk and have had a normal healthy pregnancy so far. I was just wondering if I'm in any danger of preterm labor. Thank you.
