Calendar seems to lose appointments

I seem to have a problem of that sometimes I enter items into my calendar on my iPhone and then they later completely vanish. I also access calendar from my iPad and MacBook. The problem is possibly more frequent with appointments entered into the past. For example, sometimes I enter something after it has taken place just so in the future I can go back and see when the last time I did it was.

Does anyone know what possible explanations for this might be? Is it conceivable my iPad is overwriting the calendar on my iPhone or something like that?

Is your calendar a single calendar or does it contain consolidated calendars?
I ran into something like this (a while back) and it turned out to be an issue with the multiple calendars. My Exchange calendar is primary and I was having an issue with my iOS calendar. As I use Exchange and Google (Exchange for Work, Google for personal), I turned off the iCloud calendar and my issue stopped. Never did find out why that appeared to be the problem.
Running 7 calendars on my iPhone, 4 on my iPad, and 3 on my rMB. The calendars are common on the iPhone.

[doublepost=1498943828][/doublepost]I just have my gmail calendar and the Apple home and work calendars. Do you think I should try turning off the google calendar, or does it seem unlikely that's the problem?

What you might try is turning off a calendar and seeing if not solves the problem. You could temporarily use another app for that calendar.
Google - not a likely candidate but there have been crazier inconsistencies in iOS.
