This used to happen to me before from time to time - In my case the symptom was that the bottles that got bottled first were super-carbonated, while those after them would be flat(ish). Now I gently stir the beer in the bucket (with a sanitized spoon of course) every 10-12 bottles. So I'd bottle 10, then stir it gently , then another ten and so forth. Never had the problem since I started doing that.
Another thing you wanna make sure is that you cool down your sugar to the temperature of the beer in the bucket (or at least close to). If the sugar solution is too hot and beer relatively cold it may not mix well.
