uneven stain finish

My husband and I live in a turn of the century American foursquare. We are attempting to refinish the floors in one of the bedrooms. I believe the floor is pine we sanded the floor and then applied a coat of stain. We decided we wanted the floor a little darker so we applied a second coat of stain (after the first coat was fully dry) the second coat didn't "soak" in evenly and in some spots it looks dull and in other spots it looks shiny. We have allowed the floor to dry for three days just to make sure it wasn't just drying slowly due to the wet wheather we have been having recently. What we are wondering is when we put the poly on will that even the finish out or will you be able to tell that the stain finish isn't even.:confused:
