I would just take it easy,if you have to hold your little one hold him sitting on the floor,I am sure you will be fine. Enjoy your alone time.

if you are still having a headache your hubby may want to stay home with you or at least come home and check on you at least every 2-3 hrs. and if you are asleep wake you every hour or so to check for confusion, lethargic, or unconsciousness....hope everything goes OK

Um, you have cla__sic concussion symptoms, and since you knocked yourself out, that's bad. Call your doctor, at least get checked out. I would recommend that. Have your husband check on you every few hours. Swelling can occur and be delayed. I wouldn't worry too much but the fact you knocked yourself out is a little upsetting to me (worked in the ER for a few years).
