Problem with sequential approvals

I am building a fairly simple sequential approval process. When a document is saved an approval request is sent to person A, when they approve it an approval request is sent to person B and finally when they approve it an approval request is sent to person C. When they approve it an email is sent to the originator to confirm it's been approved.

 

The problem that I'm having is that once Person A approves it, the flow is triggering the approval requests for both Person B and Person C as well as the final approval email all at the same time. It's not working sequentially. 

 

What am I doing wrong?

Are you using "Start and wait for an approval" action for A, B, and C? If so, they should wait. If you are just using "Create an approval" action, it will not wait.
