I didn't apply for the earned income credit or child credit how can I fix this

I didn't want the earned income credit because it said I wouldn't apply. I also didn't want the child tax credit as I'm pregnant and can't claim a child yet. How can I fix this and get my return? It's been forever and my patience are running very thin especially with your site. Any help appreciated

You do not have to have a dependent to be eligible for the EIC, which is automatic if you qualify.

You must be within the income requirements and be age 25 thru age 64 to be eligible.  See this IRS website for EIC eligibility requirements -https://www.irs.gov/credits-deductions/individuals/earned-income-tax-credit/eitc-income-limits-maxim...
