AD7177-2 Continuous Conversion Mode Issues

I'm having issues with the continuous conversion mode in my AD7177. In order to have it start a conversion, I need to pulse my SYNC pin. ... then to get another conversion, I need to pulse the SYNC pin again. I feel like this is wrong because it seems more in line with single conversion mode (but I've checked and I'm actually in the continuous conversion mode).

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
