Yawning with mask on

I have only been using CPAP for almost a week now and have taken to it really well. I have the ResMed Airsense10 with the F&P Simplus full face mask. Pressure is set at 9 - 18. Wondering if anyone else has issues when they go to yawn after putting mask on and starting machine. When I do, it feels like the air pressure doesn't let me complete the yawn so I stop mid-yawn. I know it sounds odd, and not a big deal, but it is frustrating. I was just wondering if anyone else experienced the same thing.

I have just been issued my CPAP and have not had a good experience. However, I tend to yawn frequently and was shocked when air came blasting out of my throat. What a wake up call. I am trying the nose pillows and I'm not sure I can handle not being able to open my mouth to yawn. Sigh. I will also be interested to hear how others are handling this?
