Just to give you some peace of mind Beth, I've been doing weights (high reps with as much weight I could take without having to give up midway) 4 times a week for 2 years now and I'm not what you'd consider bulky in the least. Women need to do a lot of really hard training plus serious diet modification to start bulking up. It's just not in our genetic make up.
Might be worth seeing if your local gym does BodyPump classes. That makes a good introduction to free weights and helps you get good form too.
