Why can't you hear when you yawn or stretch?

It probably has to do with the pressure in your head while your yawning but that's just a guess.

good question!!!

I always thought it had something to do with blood flow.

No idea, but did you know that when you sneeze, your heart stops?

this is what i found....

The Eustachian tube in the ear is normally closed but opens from time to time when we swallow or yawn interfering with hearing.

Its funny that you posted this.  I recently went through a trauma which caused me to suffer major blood loss.  The was a few days ago.  Ever since I can actually hear the blood in my head.  It is the strangest thing.  Everytime my heart beats I can hear a swish-thump in my ears/head.

Unrelated I know, but I thought it was interesting.  It is also very annoying, last night for hours I thought the neighbours had their bass up too loud!
