Will using robots exclusion and meta exclusion hurt me?

I am working on a brand new site (already online) and have added a global disallow in my robots.txt and am also using meta tags noindex and nofollow while I develop it.

My question is, when it comes time to launch will this hurt the speed with which I get indexed? Will Google for example, decide that I don't want to be indexed and therefore no check back as often?

Does anybody have any experience with this situation?

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
