The right answer is:
(This is usually used in the negative: Don’t hold your breath. It means you’re waiting for something that will probably not happen, or it will take much longer than you thought: longer than you can hold your breath).
Here are some examples of how you can use it:
I’ve sent a letter to the insurance claiming the damages, but I’m not holding my breath. It will probably take them a long time to get back to me.
The government says they’re going to cut taxes on basic goods. – Don’t hold your breath. They said that last year too.
