Problem with initial seeding on Bit Torrent

This is just a recent phenomenon. When I go to seed something as the initial seeder, the torrent will go in spurts of uploading, and then will stop, and then will upload again, and then will stop uploading, etc. This first started happening with the Rush show I put up here last month, and it's happened again on other torrents on different sites. This only happens when I'm the initial seeder. I have no problems downloading, and no problems uploading when I'm not the initial seeder.

I'm using uTorrent, but I've also tried BitTornado and the same thing happens. I'm also plugged in directly to the modem, no routers involved, and on uTorrent it says that my network connection is fine. Anyone know what's going on?
