Mensagem:  That's correct. It means that you don't expect the event to happen. Guy says, "I'm sorry. I will bring you some flowers tonight." Girlfriend says, "I'm not holding my breath." (Which means she doubts him. If she held her breath until he did what she wants then she would have the confidence that he is going to do what he promised.)
