I accidentally said "I love you" to the guy I've been dating for 3 weeks, and now I feel awkward.

I've been dating a pretty awesome guy for a little over three weeks, and we both agree that the other is awesome. We are exclusive but not official (because, holy crap, we've only been dating for three weeks).
Last night in bed after some drinking and sexy-time, I accidentally said "I love you" to him, and then I immediately said, "OH NO, I DON'T REALLY! AT LEAST NOT YET! andnowiwanttoeatmyfaceoff" and kind of freaked out/got super-embarrassed. He was nice about it and said that it wasn't that big of a deal, but now I feel super-awkward and weird about blurting out something that I typically place quite a bit of weight in/wait a while to say.
Metafilter, please help me feel less awkward about this and give me stories about times when you've said "I love you" when you didn't mean it but were totally potentially on your way there and it worked out fine. I know I'm overreacting/being too hard on myself, but I just feel a little mortified.
