I pitched my yeast on a jam wine almost 72 hours ago, and while there is foam, and my primary is bulging, the SG has not moved from it's start of 1.100 (Jack Keller's recipe called for 1.095).
Also, there doesn't appear to be any lees on the bottom.
Any thoughts/reassurances?

Go ahead and stir it up, and stir some more. If the primary is bulging, make sure you have an unblocked airlock (or better, take off the lid and airlock and cover with a towel), and stir a couple of times per day. It sounds like it's going if you've got foam and activity.
