Moving/Expanding a Load-Bearing Wall

I have a bathroom on the second level of my house that is very narrow. I am thinking about expanding the load-bearing wall. where the vanity is currently up against, out approx. 3' to obtain more room in the bathroom. The other side of the wall is a bedroom, so there would not be any true obstructions stopping me.

My question is what needs to be done in the attic to make this possible and not mess up the structure in the attic? Is this advisible?

I have a drawing of my idea for this, as well as some pictures for reference, and if that would help, please e-mail me and let me know ([email protected] Any advise regarding the structure would be great. Thanks in advance.
