The Last Course Problem

Laying 3/4 T&G Bellawood Brazillian Cherry.

I've noticed that 2 boards will abut each other on top of a tongue, but there will be a small gap underneath the tongue. This isn't a problem normally as it keeps the boards really tight where it shows. But when face nailing the last row, there is nothing to hold the board parallel to the floor, so it tends to push down and creates a gap between the last row and second to last row.

What is the easiest way of preventing this? I have one more room to go.

Your question is a bit obscure to me.. not sure what you're asking... but - if I read the issue properly - I will nail down the last course using a prybar against the wall and the last course before pounding my face nails.. keeping the last row tight against the next one....
