Creating Contract "FAILED_ACTIVATION" error

I am trying to create an contract on an account with an API call and am receiving the following status code "FAILED_ACTIVATION". I am setting the Status to "Pending" not "To Activate" so I'm not sure why I getting this error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
From the docs:

Client applications must initially create a Contract in a non-Activated state. Client applications can subsequently activate a Contract by calling update and setting the value in its Status field to Activated; however, the Status field is the only field that the client application can set in the update call when activating the Contract.

Also, make sure the Status Category of "Pending" is not "Activated" when you look at the Contract's Status field in Setup.
