iPhone 8+

I’ve lost untold dozens of contacts. Some from the last year, some from two years ago, and some from ten years ago. But I kept some from last week, last year, and years ago. Makes no sense.

Order of events:
Changed my gmail password in September or so. Didn’t bother to update it on my phone because I never use it. I realized later (as in an hour ago) that my contacts are shown as synced to that account.

Sometime about three weeks ago: Did the most recent iPhone system update. Kept getting prompts after to log into my gmail but ignored them Bc I didn’t care about that account. All contacts intact.

Last night: Finally put my new password into gmail. Immediately lost probably over a hundred contacts from various points since I’ve had a phone. My entire family’s numbers etc are gone, for instance.

I thought my phone was set to sync contacts to the iCloud nightly. When I try to open my iCloud it says nothing is there.

Any suggestions from the computer literate on the forum?
