My son is 3 weeks old and he seems to be eating every hour, sometimes 2 hours....but I feel like all I do is nurse.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the bonding I get to do with him while I nurse but I get nervous if this is normal

Mine is the same age and eating just as frequently, usually cluster feeding all afternoon and then taking a conveniently times nap while I feed the other kids and get them ready for bed.
It's totally normal. This is growth spurt number one...

You mean you get an hour between nursing at 3 weeks? Lucky!
When DS was that age I was lucky if I got 15 minute breaks.
As long as he is making the right amount of diapers, anything is normal.

Normal. 6 diapers in 24 hours tells you he is getting enough!

Normal. Welcome to the amazing, awesome, THREE WEEK GROWTH SPURT! He is doing what he needs to do to bring your supply up to his next level of need. At the end of the spurt, he will sleep a lot and grow out of his current set of clothes.:-)
