It sounds like you only did a single safety stop
at maybe 15'?

For several years now, I've been doing a stop each
time I cut my depth in half. On your first dive
that would have meant stops at 60', 30', and 15',
and on the second and third dives at 30' and 15'.
(no, I don't calculate the depths precisely). I
take a minute to get from stop to stop.

There's a good deal of evidence that deep stops
reduce the formation of microbubbles.
