advance lever acting up?

Film Discussion and Q & A - www.thephotoforum.com
Hello! I was shooting with my Pentax k-1000 yesterday and when I want to advance the film (I was about 7 shots in) I found that the lever wasn't moving smoothly. (This is like my 3rd roll with the camera.) It is kind of "bumpy"— not a constant, gliding transition but moving in increments. It takes more force to advance, too. I don't know if it's because I loaded the film wrong maybe? Usually when I load it I advance it a couple times before closing the door, but for some reason I feel like I may have skipped that step and just shut the door. Could the film being a bit slack cause this? The film is still advancing... I think. At least I can see my shot count number increasing. Has this happened to anyone? Will my shots still turn out if I finish the roll? What do you guys think the cause is?
