Yes you can go for induction if the dates are accurate and baby's lungs are mature.

You need Ultrasound and other tests to look for fetal lung maturity. If the lungs are are mature there is less risk of RDSin neonate.

Because it is only 3 weeks earlier, I am positive your baby lungs are mature.

Good Luck
