Hi, can I use these two (expected / expecting) for the same situation? 1) ''I'm expected your approval. Thank you!'' 2) ''I'm expecting your approval. Thank you!''

The 1st one is incorrect. The verb and the subject to agree with each other.If the verb (expected) is in past tense the subject must also be in the past tense (replacing "am" with had or have). The 2nd one is correct for the subject is in present tense thanks to the auxiliary verb "am" which makes the Subject and Verb agree with each other.
