Missed first 2 pills of new HBC Pack... Halp!

Hi all!

So... I was a goof and messed up. I was supposed to start my new HBC pack on Saturday-- It's Monday today, so I'm 2 days late (2 missed pills).

I did some research, and it looks like:
If you missed 2 or more active (hormonal) pills or if you started a pack 2 or more days late

1. Take 2 active (hormonal) pills as soon as possible and then continue taking pills daily. You should take 2 pills on the same day. You may take one at the moment of remembering, and the other at the regular time or both at the same time.
2. Also, use condoms or abstain from sex until you have taken active (hormonal) pills for 7 days in a row.
3. If you missed the pills in the third week of the pack, you should continue taking the active (hormonal) pills in your current pack daily. When all active pills have been taken, discard the pack and begin a new pack the next day. You should not take the 7 inactive pills.
4. If you missed the pills during the first week and had unprotected sex you should use emergency contraception for maximum protection, in addition to taking today's active birth control pill.

So... I know that I should take 2 pills when I get home today. So that takes care of today's pill and one of the missed pills. What about the second missed pill though? Do I take 2 pills today and 2 pills tomorrow? It's been a while since I last had sex, as I had my period last week... so that I last had sex about 7-9 days ago, pre-period. I think I should be okay in this regard with pregnancy?

And I should be fully protected by next weekend, right? (no sex this weekend with the holidays-- both bf and I will be at our respective families' places).
