Stake pool profits

I setup 2 nodes with the minimum requirements in Amazon ec2, and small staking too. The nodes seem to be working fine in testnet. However, even though the BP node processed many transactions, it did not produced any block for a month, and my costs has been 140 usd to keep the images running. I wonder if this is going to be profitable any time soon.
Any suggestions?

how large is you current active stake?

Pledge 2000 ADA.
running cardano-cli stake-distribution I get: 2.101e-7

If you are really on the testnet, you will not have any income regardless of your active stake. Actual cost to the operator, profitability and a comparison with “just delegate” is over here.

Here is good reward calculator that can estimate your returns.
