Default low carbonation after two weeks

I bottled my brew two weeks ago and I still have very low carbonation. I put the 3/4 cup of sugar in the carboy before bottling and I stirred the beer every six bottles. What can I do to add more carbonation. Any advice would help. Much appreciated.

Just wait another week or two and make sure your bottles are around 70F and be patient.

Hope the beer turns out well! Also, it may help to pour the beer with the bottle at a greater distance from the glass as it will release more CO2 and give your beer a nice head.
