Need help with 300E headgasket replacement, FSM says measure head bolt stretch

I have a 1988 I have just replaced the headgasket. I read in the manual to measure head bolts before reusing them. They measured within spec. I was on my last sequence where you torque them one last 90 degrees and I got interupted. I don't remember which one I was on in the order it says in the book. I may have missed one or two. I relize the head bolts are torque to yield therefore I do not want to repeat the torqueing sequence. What should I do? Will it be OK if I maybe missed the last step on 1 or 2 bolts? I am probably getting myself worried for nothing. The bolts are already very tight.
