I dont think there is anything wrong with keeping your options open, in my case I really believe it saved me from much more serious complications. But it isn't necessary for every delivery IMO.
I have thought about asking if I can have a shot of Pit if I absolutely need it--do you remember why it hurt so much? Is it the needle they use or where they put it?
