Not really. Writing a SQL migration takes what, 10 minutes max? Or you add the columns as you go, and it all just merges into the normal dev time of the feature anyway.

You'll easily make up this lost time just in not having to immediately clean up crappy data that you've written to the database while you're developing the feature. That's been my experience anyway.
