Weird cycle

This morning I tested my ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate to see how far along my cycle is. The other day it seemed to be going quite fine. The ammonia and nitrite had both fallen to 1 ppm and the nitrate was just barley detectable. Then this morning when I go to check the ammonia has dropped to .25 ppm, the nitrite stayed at about 1 ppm, but now the nitrite is around 40 ppm. Will it drop or am I going to have to do a water change before the fish ever go in?
