Pop in pants. How long can this go on? Ugh

I'm really frustrated now so sorry if this is a long rant. Ds is 3. He's been toilet trained for wees for 7 months now and takes himself to the toilet no problem whatsoever. He was the one who asked for underpants as he said diapers were uncomfortable for him, so I didn't push potty training on him. Poos are a different story. At the beginning of the potty training he was asking to go for poos and did them on the toilet. After a couple of weeks or so he just started soiling himself and he's not even bothered telling me. I've been cleaning up to 3 poos daily and I'm just sick of it I'm literally crying right now. I'm 25 weeks pregnant and exhausted already, just can't imagine how much worse it'd be when the baby is here. We've tried "rewards". He doesn't care. I explain to him why it needs to be done in the toilet. We've read lots of stories and I've managed to keep the fun spirit up until today's morning where I was really cross and he kept apologising, and still did the second poo in pants. Ugh. Can't stand the thought of washing one more pair of pooey pants.

Has anyone been through this and came out of the other end? Any tips? Thank you.

Sorry I can't offer any advise but wishing to all the best! It sounds a frustrating situation. Is there any chance of a medical issue?

Usually that happens when kids are constipated. If necessary try to solve that and start a better diet plenty of veggies and fruits.

Sorry, no useful advice as such, just wanted to let you know you're not alone. Currently going through the same with ds(4) even when he gets a sore bum it still doesn't seem to register, I've talked to him calmly and tried everything I can think of but nothing seems to work. He isn't constipated and eats plenty of fruit and veg. I'm going to get him in the doctors as I just don't know what else to do.
Wishing you luck with your ds, i know how incredibly frustrating this is.

We’re in the midst of this with 4.5 year old and school is looming! I feel your pain. No advice but solidarity.
