Potty training regression

Nadir is frustrating me.

He started off potty training ok. He was peeing in the potty, not regularly, but a few times during the day. Since his move to the preschool room, he has basically stopped peeing in the potty. He's done it a couple of times and received rewards for it but he still prefers to wear pullups. For the past couple of weeks, he has tried to stop himself from peeing completely. He'll have on a pull-up but he'll cross his legs and try to stop the pee from coming out. I tell him it's ok to pee because he has on a pull-up or I offer to take him into the bathroom but he just says he doesn't like to pee. The daycare says he doesn't even respond to rewards anymore.

I'm really at a loss. Do I just let him continue on in pull ups? I'm afraid that it will hold him back from progressing in daycare.

I'd love your advice.

Oh, the joys of potty training... I remember those days when my kids were Nadir's age. I know it can be challenging for any parent, but I also know that they learn, so don't give up. I want to offer two articles that were put together by the counselors at Focus on the Family, the organization I am associated with: We've been trying to potty-train our 2-year-old son for several months now, so far without success. Is this normal? and Potty Training. You can also call one of them at 1-855-771-4357, they'll be happy to talk with you and offer some ideas. There is no charge for this service. I hope this information is helpful.

Leave him in pull ups. The one thing kids have complete control over is going to the bathroom.

And eating...
Cant force it out (pee poop) cant force it in (eating).

I might take him to the urologist just to make sure he isn't holding it in due to discomfort letting it out...
Id also look at it from a sensory standpoint- since i know he has some sensory stuff... Does he not like that its cold when he takes his pants off? Does he like the feeling of full bladder ( and the other physical sensations that come when he has to pee).
I also think that once he decides to go on the potty he will... Most kids i know train when they r ready all on their own. My guess is Nadir knows what and where he is supposed to do... And when he is ready- he will.
How old is he?

He's 3 1/2. I figure I'll stop pushing because I could just be turning him off.

I'm going to work on getting him to sleep in a big boy bed. He doesn't seem too keen on that either though.
