Default Sediment in bottles??

So I just bottled my very first batch. Pretty successful, but now after it has sat in the bottle for a few days there is a thin layer of sediment in the bottom. I did not go through a funnel with a filter going from secondary to the bottleing bucket. My question is, is it normal or has anyone else had this experience with the sediment on the bottom of your bottles??

It is normal. Just pour the beer and leave the last little bit in the bottle.

100% normal. Similar to the way the yeast flocculate and settle to the bottom of your primary. If you don't have at least some sediment in your bottles, you either have a commercial filtration system, or you have a blessing of the Beer Gods on your side.
