Possible: It is possible, but not definite. You need to ask your ob/gyn to evaluate the ultrasound readings.

Yes: Congratulations! two sacs means 2 embryos which have the potential to become 2 babies. Be aware that the gestational sac is very early in development, so sometimes it doesn't continue to progress, especially if it's located in a place where implantation is difficult. You will need to have repeat ultrasounds to watch for proper growth.
