Nitrate should go higher and then the nitrite will drop. Your ammonia should be dropping too. Give it a little more time, IMO. You may actually have to add more ammonia back up to 2.0 one more time to get it all moving. When you get 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and some nitrates then you are cycled. Then do a water change to bring down the nitrates to lower than 40ppm...best at 5 or 10 ppm. Keep us posted.
