Well technically speaking you should probably have made a 2000ml starter for the 1.070 OG, but since most people don't even make a starter and just pitch the vial, you are still better off.

Is it possible to swirl too hard before pitching if cake is firmly stuck? I just am not seeing alot of activity in my airlock but I've read that's not the end all, be all. So hoping everything is fine.

Not really. We agitate the bejeesus out of yeast in lab. They like it rough.

Thanks for the reply and good to know. I think I'm just going to ride it out and see next week what I have for a hydrometer reading. I don't really want to risk oxidation to take a reading.

Take as many readings as you want. That's not going to cause oxidation.
