Default Novice question about bottling and priming.

I had just bottled my first batch.
My gravity readings had stayed around 1.000 mark for 3 days. However it was still putting out some gas.
Definitely not like it was during fermentation but still pumps some out.
I am also carbing it so I added priming sugar in the batch. However I used a bit less than recommended because I wasn't sure.
I cracked one of my six test bottles open on day 2 it was lightly carbonated but not close to done.

Anyone enlighten me on if I am doing something wrong?
Any help will be deeply appreciated.

Only not being patient. It can take weeks before you see the carbonation you are after.

Day 2 in the bottle? Way early to start opening bottles. Open 1 a week to see how the carbonation progresses.

Full process will take 3-4 weeks (+/-)

Cheers!

3 weeks at 70 degrees and you'll be good.

Agreed, 3 weeks at 70f. Sometimes even more time is required.
