You have not mentioned the service center where your H1 was filed,
The USCIS website mentions that average processing time is 2-3 months but my h1 was filed at California on September 12th 2011 (as regular) and the status showed as "Initial Review" till the end of December 2011,
my employer then paid a premium processing fee (as my OPT expiry date was coming close) and i got my H1 on Jan 10th.
Hope it helps, Good luck with your H1

Thanks for your response. My visa was filed at Vermont Service Center.
