Shower Installation Question

A shower install question, please: I put 1/2 Hardiboard over studs (16" ctrs), muddled    but did NOT tape joints or corners, then heavily coated joints with Mapei Aqua Defense, with joint tape, and 2 coats on all backer board, with extra Aqua Defense in corners. I'm super worried about not having taped the thin set. My tile is ceramic, 9x12". What do you advise as my path forward? Many thanks!! R.Kern
