Unless there is a problem, inductions are usually done at 38-39 weeks. Before this the baby's lungs may not be mature and could cause breathing problems.

Same with me, my baby was 4.1 kg very big like a 2months. I exceeded my due date with 10days n my dr induced me n I was realy tired n paining my pelvic area. Jst a month before he was born he was already 3.6 kg. I thought I was going to deliver earlier than my due date, but where? waited and waited. I thinkng your baby is ready.
