Is her salinity high? I don't remember. If she is going to do a water change she needs salt and RODI water.

Just be patient. Don't do any water changes until the cycle is complete. It will get there eventually!

Is there a point where the readings get too high that I need to do a water change?

The faster you cycle your tank the more problems you will have later down the road. It's call new tank syndrome. Mine cycled in 12 but I'm sure anyday now ill have a little spike... I have a bag of clear blue fx (or something like that) in my filter keeping everything down...
