Trans help urgent!

Puked about 1 qt of fluid as I was refilling my trans right by the bell housing it came pissing out. I had about 11qts in when it happened. Stock pan etc. I feel like I should've been filling it in stages and now overfilled it but am unsure and don't want to start lol. Any help is appreciated

I take 10'-12' of cheap 3/8" OD white poly tubing and run one end down the dipstick tube(fits perfect). I push the poly tube down until it touches the bottom of the pan and pull back ~1/4" and siphon 95% of the fluid out into milk jugs. This does 2 things; it makes pulling the pan MUCH more pleasant and I know the exact volume of what I took out. Therefore if the fluid level was correct before draining and I put the same amount back in, level it right on the money without dinking around checking and adding all afternoon.
