What am I doing wrong?????

Have a D7100 and a SB-800. I have very little experience with the SB-800. At a large indoor get together a few months ago I was successful in taking many good photos with it.
Last week was asked once again to take photos and again used the SB-800. There area was well lit with fluorescent s, but flash is still needed.
When I pushed the shutter, it made the flash, flash three times, before the flash went off. I turned the AF to off on the SB-800 menu. Is there someplace on the D7100’s menu that controls this???
How can I stop the three mini-flashes before the flash goes off.
