Once you place a bid on a "Buy it Now" item, that option disappears. You now have to hope that yours is the highest bid at the end of the auction.

You can contact the seller, and tell him that you accidentally bid on it, and now want to buy it. Maybe he/she will accept, and you guys will find a way.

Buy it now is only available if the person has listed the item with that option available. The buy it now option is available until the auction price is higher than the buy it now price.
