So if I did the jar upside down trick, & I hear/see the jars have popped - do I still waterbath jam?

So I just jumped into doing this today: boiled jars/lids/rings for 10 mins, and then went straight to adding the jam/preserves (to the hot jars). I turned the jars upside down and planned to waterbath them for 10 mins. However, I'm hearing the cans pop/seal. Do I still need to water bath these? I'm planning on giving them as holiday gift, so these won't/can't go in the fridge.
