32-month old son not pooping on potty


Sorry to be an annoyance but I am desperate for more help. Since we only began potty-training my son 8 days ago, is it too soon to expect him to be able to poop on the potty? As I said, he caught onto peeing within days. I feel, though, like he knows when he has to poop b/c he goes in another room or where I can't see him. Is it reasonable of me to expect him to do it in the potty this soon? And how long is long enough to leave him gated in the bathroom? What if doing that causes him to regress with the peeing because he's so furious?
