Default Fermentation stuck?

I recently brewed a double chocolate stout and my og was 1.057 and after 10 days it is down to 1.020...I pitched 1 packet of nottingham, should I pitch another or wait two weeks and see what happens???

Recipe? You may just have a lot of unfermentables.

I don't think its stuck. That pound of lactose will keep your gravity higher since it is unfermentable
